What Does Fed Action Mean For Long-Term Rates?

What Does Fed Action Mean For Long-Term Rates?

Here we go again.  Hand-wringing over the Fed’s tightening schedule has caused a sell-off in bonds and all things income related.  After falling for most of July and August, the 10-year Treasury yield has jumped to over 2.6% on speculation that the Fed may start tightening monetary policy sooner than previously thought. We’ll see. The Fed may indeed start to raise short-term rates as soon...

Fear Is Not Rational: The Limitations Of The VIX

Fear Is Not Rational: The Limitations Of The VIX

Most of us as traders and simply as human beings seek clarity.  We innately feel the need to make sense out of chaos.  We want answers.  We want black or white.  Gray makes many of us uneasy.  So, there are often times when faced with the complex world that is trading, we want to boil things down into one universal truth, a methodology that we can apply wherever we go. Problem is we often...

Alibaba? Nah, I'll Just Pass On This One

As we are about to embark upon one of the biggest IPO's in history I thought it would be a good time to step back and see what this is all about and how you can shield yourself from a potentially dangerous situation. As we know, Alibaba (BABA) will come public this week.  The company is a juggernaut in Asia, selling everything online to anyone much in the way Amazon does here in the States....

Can the Market Hold On At This Altitude?

Okay, so I suggested yesterday that Tuesday’s market move was a bit exaggerated for both the current climate and the “news” about the Fed. I must admit, the buying that happened yesterday seemed a bit stronger than warranted. The lack of follow-through yesterday (even after the FOMC notes came out with the language the market supposedly likes to hear) suggested a soft bullishness, a lack of...

Institutional Traders Use Pivot Points: Here's Why

Institutional Traders Use Pivot Points: Here's Why

Back in mid July I wrote that the S&P 500 (SPX) was close to major resistance at the Yearly R1 pivot point at 1990. On July 24 the S&P (SPX) tested 1990 and two weeks later had fallen 90 points (5%) to 1900. How did I know that 1990 would be strong resistance? I knew that the big banks, market makers and Algos all use pivot points. Most professional traders use daily and weekly...

A Guide To Alibaba’s (BABA) Record-Setting IPO

Demand has been so strong that its expected price range has been bumped higher to $66-$68 from the original...

For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.

To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.

By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.

Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
